Scholar Spotlight: Ava Aita

Ava Avita Class of 2027

As a part of our Scholar Spotlight series, we sat down with DLFF/CEC Scholar Ava Aita to get to know more about her, and various service projects that she's worked on throughout her time within DLFF.

Ava Aita is a scholar in the Class of 2027 at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School. Ava is extremely active within her community and is always looking for new ways to volunteer or contribute to causes she cares about. Outside of community service, Ava is involved in multiple sports. 

Back in 2020, during the peak of COVID-19 restrictions, Ava started her own fundraiser to benefit those currently battling breast cancer. 

This year, through September 10 and October, Ava designed t-shirts to benefit her cause and spent time cutting the prints, assisting with pressing prints, packaging the shirts, and delivering the shirts that were ordered. Any donations that were not used for t-shirt supplies were donated directly to Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center. Ava was able to donate $400 to the Center at the end of the month this past October. 

Even after Ava’s impressive fundraising campaign for Penn Medicine, she didn’t stop there. Once a month, Ava volunteers her time to the Little Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (LAOH). This program encourages young girls to work with others, while learning about Irish Heritage, something important to Ava.

In keeping with the theme of continuing to help others, Ava hopes to become a teacher and continue to motivate her peers. Ava’s consistent and passionate involvement within her community is something we can all strive to embody. We could not be more proud of all the work she has done within and beyond DLFF.

Congratulations and excellent work, Ava! We cannot wait to see all the amazing work you continue to do.
